Bar­ry­roe’s sea­sonal tip­ple

Irish Examiner - Farming - - NEWS - Stephen Cado­gan

Farm­ers in a cor­ner of West Cork are look­ing for­ward to a Christ­mas din­ner dessert course of Five Farms Sin­gle Batch Ir­ish Cream.

This cream liqueur is for sale in Bar­ry­roe Co-op’s Eurospar su­per­mar­ket at €34.95 for 70cl, and is sure to go down a treat, be­cause its cream in­gre­di­ent is sourced en­tirely from five lo­cal farms.

Lau­rence Sex­ton, John Hal­lis­sey, and Guy Scott (who make up the three­way LJG Dairy Part­ner­ship), Barry O’ma­hony, and Michaecole­man, are the farm­ers whose cream will be put to the test in this new drink, which is said to have an “invit­ing nose of but­ter­scotch, caramel fon­due, and vanilla bean”, and is rec­om­mended as an af­ter-din­ner drink in place of dessert.

How­ever well it goes down with the lo­cals, it has al­ready won a Chair­man’s Tro­phy for Ire­land at the 2018 Ultimate Spir­its Chal­lenge, and is be­ing launched with na­tion­wide tastings in the US.
